Editorial Reviews


"This book will serve a wide audience, including readers with an interest in language policy, the teaching of heritage and second languages, and heritage language maintenance. It features a good mix between papers presenting new research and survey articles covering a more general spectrum. Each chapter is well-written and comprehensive, with a thorough yet concise exposition of background information and, where applicable, the particular study done. The book is suitable for use in a doctoral level course and will help introduce the pan-linguistic nature of the discipline to students who may be acquainted with the situation of just one language." --Laura Michele Callahan, The Linguist List, Fall 2008 (19.3345) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
